The supply chain is fragmented

We’re changing that.

Scheduling Standards Consortium

The Scheduling Standards Consortium (SSC) was formed to simplify the integration of systems across the fragmented ecosystem between shippers, carriers and intermediaries and create a more efficient appointment scheduling process.

We have published our initial scheduling requirements and are working on developing the API specification to be released later this year.

Together, we can move faster and have a greater impact in driving real change and adoption in the industry.
